Leading Science In a SEND Setting

Leading science in a special educational needs setting has been developed to empower practitioners working in SEND settings to discover the potential of the science curriculum for students.

The course will provide a framework for participants to evaluate their current provision, identify their own next steps and improve their own leadership skills. It will provide a wealth of practical activities which are accessible for children with a range of additional needs and explores how working scientifically can be planned for throughout the curriculum for pupils with SEND to improve outcomes for students.

Science through storytelling

Stories can be a great way to give context to a science lesson but storytelling goes one step further. If the story you tell has science woven through its heart, and the children learn to tell that story, then they also learn to tell the science.

In this session, Jules Pottle, Science Specialist Teacher and Trainer with Storytelling Schools will lead us through the process of learning to tell a story and teaching children to be storytellers. She will show how the emotional content can be used to aid learning and how to create a truly cross-curricular topic, built around a science story. This session will be practical - you’ll learn skills you can use in the classroom tomorrow - come ready to join in!
